It’s October 28th already, and you don’t have a Halloween costume. But worry not, because we’ve got your back.
What's with the name?

Well here’s something completely unexpected. CBS is creating a comedy pilot from Conan O’Brien’s Conaco in association with Warner Bros. Television, for something called Super Fun Night. And guess what? It’s about a group of nerdy women. It also stars one of the actresses from Bridesmaids. This could be amazing.READ MORE

I think I saw these girls standing outside the Music Hall of Williamsburg, waiting to see the Jolly Frogs for a super secret set. Never heard of them? Not surprised, they’re so underground they’re underwater. (File under: Web Series That Might Have to Happen.) (via Erin Knits, Nerds, Exists)READ MORE

I think we can officially say that 2011 was Melissa McCarthy‘s year. I don’t mean this to say she’ll never be successful again, but if there was ever a time when someone’s career took a sharp turn for the amazing (after already being not-too-shabby-at-all), it was last year. Because now the Emmy-winner is a newly-minted Oscar nominee (Best Supporting Actress for Bridesmaids), right alongside the women who created this game-changing role for her — Best Original Screenplay nominees Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo. This is such a great day for women in comedy, but really, it’s a great day for comedy in general.READ MORE

Okay, that title is pure Hunger Games fanaticism, but seriously, when one of the major themes of The Hunger Games is the shallowness and self-pandering nature of pomp and circumstance, it doesn’t get more surreal than to see Jennifer Lawrence announcing the Oscar nominations like she was picking random tribute children on Reaping Day. Above, you can see the video, below, a list of the nominees, to remind you of all the movies you intended to see this year and didn’t.READ MORE

Not one of the people who made Bridesmaids a success last year supported a sequel to the comedy hit, the only saving grace for the idea being the return of every single person from the original. Well, the woman responsible for the movie existing in the first place, Golden Globe nominee Kristen Wiig, has put the nail in the coffin, saying there will not be another matrimonial outing. So, let’s please stop throwing around the idea that this will happen, with or without her. Okay? Okay.READ MORE

The Hollywood Reporter picks apart the reason why we haven’t seen much news about a Bridesmaids sequel, despite a 900% return on their investment of $32 million in the film. In a time when plans for a sequel are often announced prior to the release of the previous film, it does seem mysterious that Universal wouldn’t be hungry for Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo to combine their powers for a second installment.
“We aren’t working on that,” says Wiig, ”Annie and I aren’t planning a sequel. We are writing something else.”READ MORE

Editor’s Note: We asked Amanda LaPergola, one of our contributing writers, to summarize the major events of the past year. All that we asked was that she complete the assignment before the Christmas holidays. As of press time, we have still not heard from her. However, yesterday a package arrived at The Mary Sue headquarters containing a note from Amanda’s mom (Dear Miss Sue: Please excuse my daughter’s tardiness. She has been too busy telling everyone in her family all about that new My Little Pony show to focus on anything else.) and the following pages.READ MORE

Well, since you asked, I’ve taken it upon myself to talk about what I really loved in 2011! Come inside, and see what was great about 2011. This is obviously not a definitive list, but as someone who spends a great deal of time on the internet, I can tell you right now that the following things were well-received for the most part. Except for Cars 2. (I’m kidding, that’s not in there … or is it?)
Anyway, come on inside! See if we loved the same stuff!READ MORE

If you live in the U.S. (like the writers of The Mary Sue), then today you’re experiencing (maybe even celebrating!) Thanksgiving 2011. And whether you’re working through the day, or preparing to stuff yourself with the roasted flesh of an over-engineered domestic bird, or whatever your particular Turkey Day tradition is, we hope you’ll indulge us for a Power Grid while we talk about what we’re thankful for.READ MORE
